The last model of its generation before a major redesign, the 2022 Kia Sportage is a crossover that proves itself year after year and offers an enjoyable experience for both driver and passengers.

Find out more about its powertrains and interior, including its intuitive infotainment technologies.

2022 Kia Sportage: Two Choices of Engines

On the menu, the first versions, the Kia Sportage LX and EX, offer a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine developing 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The SX version offers additional sportiness with its turbocharged 2.0L engine, which produces 237 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines are coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission that offers a manual mode and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for a little more fun. For an experience that suits your mood, you can choose your driving mode:

  • Eco
  • Sport
  • Intelligent
  • Comfort

Benoit Charette, journalist for L’Annuel de l’automobile, emphasizes the driving pleasure in his Kia Sportage review:

“Because the Sportage is more playful than the previous-generation of Tucson, we also liked the ride with its lively steering and responsive all-wheel drive.”

In addition, Dynamax all-wheel drive is included as standard on all versions except the entry-level LX, on which it is optional. This means that Sportage offers you ideal stability in all conditions.

Sportage: Compact, Yet Practical

The compact crossover category is very popular because it combines the advantages of an SUV with those of a smaller car. However, there is a balance to be reached, and the 2022 Kia Sportage does it very well.

Indeed, the vehicle is practical in the city, but holds enough space to comfortably accommodate the family and their luggage. The seats can be lowered, but you can also take advantage of two floor levels if needed. This gives you a trunk capacity of 798 to 868 L and a total cargo capacity of 1,565 to 1,703 L.

The optional smart power tailgate opening makes it even easier, especially when you have your hands full! Also note that a 2,000 lb. towing capacity allows you to carry all the equipment you need for your getaways.

Intuitive Technologies with UVO

Driving pleasure is not only a mechanical matter: technologies are now part of the car experience. The UVO system has proven itself to be intuitive and has all the features expected today:

  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • Hands-free Bluetooth connectivity
  • 8-inch screen

Numerous other options are available, such as a wireless charging tray. As for driver assistance technologies, there are several assists depending on the version chosen, among which: blind spot monitoring, lane keeping assist and more!

Kia Sportage Interior: A Comfortable Cabin

Inside the Kia Sportage, you’ll find cloth or leather trims depending on the version, and various available options that allow you to personalize your onboard experience, including:

  • Heated front seats
  • Heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • And more!

The SX model even adds heated rear seats and air-cooled front seats for optimal comfort in all seasons. For superior comfort and performance, consider this plus version.
